On July 11, 2019, the men of Psi Alpha Alpha (PsiAA) Chapter, Third District, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. attended the Inaugural Brother Dr. Moses C. Norman, Sr. International Leadership Conference was held in Atlantic City, NJ at the Harrah’s Hotel, July 11 – 13, 2019. There was a reported 965 Brothers who were registered at the Conference. Psi Alpha Alpha (Pisa) was well represented with 11 Brothers registered and in attendance. One of the most surprising things that happened was that the registration process was quick and painless. There was literally hardly any wait time. Registration to get your badge and credentials didn’t take longer than 2 minutes for most Brothers.
On Saturday of the Conference, Senator Kamala Harris (2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate) addressed the Brotherhood and the public that were in attendance. Kamala discussed her platform and her connections to Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.

Psi Alpha Alpha Brothers were thoroughly immersed in traditional training classes offered to include:
- Keeper of Records and Seal training,
- Keeper of Finance training,
- Membership Selection,
- Vice Basileus,
- Basileus training,
- Social event success/Fundraising
Other course offerings were made available for those in attendance and Psi Alpha Alpha chapter brothers made the most of their time taking an active role in each. It was an enlightening experience.
This year’s leadership conference while stoked in business always is embodied with a great sense of friendship as the men of Omega work and socialize alongside one another. Psi Alpha Alpha Brothers in attendance prospered from the information shared and the fellowship amongst the Brothers of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated.
